My degrees are from the College of the University of Chicago (BA) and from Harvard Law School (JD). I have clerked for Judge Mark E. Fuller (U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama -- formerly the Chief Judge), Judge William J. Martini (U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey), Judge Jane R. Roth (U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit -- now Senior), and for Judge Malachy E. Mannion (U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania -- formerly a magistrate judge). I taught Constitutional Law II at Rutgers University School of Law (Newark) during Spring 2010. At NUIM, I have taught legal writing & advocacy, equity & the law of trusts, and constitutional law. I have regularly appeared on or been interviewed by Irish television, radio, and newspapers.
